Brooke Crews, 38, originally pleaded not guilty when she was charged with kidnapping and murdering her neighbor, 22-year-old expectant mom Savanna Greywind.

But, according to WDAY, Crews filed a “notice of change of plea” to the Cass County District Court in North Dakota this week.

She’s expected to change her plea during an upcoming hearing on December 11. Crews has not indicated if she will be changing her plea to guilty or not guilty by reason of insanity. As People reports, a mental evaluation could determine if she is fit to stand trial.

Crews is one of two suspects who was charged with conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping, and providing false information to the police in September.

Her 32-year-old boyfriend, William Henry Hoehn, was also charged. If found guilty, the couple could face life in prison without parole.

As previously reported by Dearly, Crews and Hoehn were arrested for conspiracy to commit kidnapping on August 25. At the time, Greywind had been missing for several days. Her baby was found in Crews and Hoehn’s shared apartment.

A few days later, Fargo Police Chief David Todd announced that Greywind’s body was found “wrapped in plastic and duct tape” and stuck on a tree in Red River.

The baby girl was later confirmed to be that of Greywind and her longtime boyfriend, Ashton Matheny.

A preliminary autopsy report, confirmed by CBS News, revealed that Greywind had been the victim of a homicide.

Crews and Hoehn lived in the same apartment building as Greywind. Both suspects have given different accounts of what happened to Greywind.

Before Greywind went missing, she was invited upstairs to help fit a dress for Crews. She was eight months pregnant at the time. Crews and Hoehn are currently in prison with bond set at $2 million each.
